Got this mouse at amazon.de for 37 Euros - which is a pretty good or maybe the best price for a 3310 sensor mouse.
One can read a lot of criticism about the mouse - and it's all right.
Cons I observed:
- feet loose when arriving and one slightly rippled
- scrollwheel scratching when pressing right mouse button at same time
- no stable 1000Hz or 500Hz when using the mouse tester from this forum
had the same problem with a SS Rival with same sensor but not with a Fireglider Optical which uses the entry level/cheap: PixArt PAW3305DK
- both buttons loose and rattling like a 5$ mouse - many say the overall plastic feels cheap
- left mouse button has two click sounds, one when slightly touching and not even pressing the button - but when you press, you hear both consecutively
- scroll wheel button way too hard to press (harder than the G502 metal button), I have to cramp my whole arm to get enough pressure on that thing - one will avoid to use it, for example to open browser tabs because it's very uncompfortable
- they advertise the angled mouse cable to not scratch on the mousepad - very good idea - but totally screwed: it comes out of the mouse at a high place but leads downward instead of upward so it's even worse than a normal cable because you can't bend it upward. It will scratch with it's braid on the mousepad or the edge of it.
- and now: the software, very bad: one can not set angle snapping or acceleration like for the SS Rival, you can not customize any LED light settings/effects, only on or off, while on for the logo means only breathing effect for the logo - which is ultra annoying - so you have to keep it off.
- to use the software you have to keep those autostart entries enabled, they have like 10 "subentries" in the autostart - never ever saw this from any software to have so many!
- when you close the software window, the tray icon will stay (which is fine), but if you just close the tray icon (like for Steam), the software window will stay open - never ever saw this from any software! you always have to close both.
- when first flashing the firmware, it got corrupted and mouse cursor was always stopping and stuttering, maybe because I had the software window open - had to flash again with closed software (tray and window - see above).
But: I might keep it for the 37 Euros. Too lazy to send it back. I already had a G502 and a Steelseries Rival - there seems to be no perfect mouse.
The shape is pretty good and the sensor too - and I don't have to use the software after setting the dpi steps and Hz.
